Dec 11 RIGS Fly Shop

Happening Now: We have bigger flows than normal for this time of the year making the river full. Adding splitshot to your rig or fishing a heavy first fly on your rigs in crucial in this bigger water. Small may fly nymphs with a midge have been producing. Most of the hatches are done with the cold weather but BWO's will still come off during warmer days but fish will be slow to rise. Watch the weather as the roads and trails can be really muddy when wet.

Most Productive: Indicator season is here as we start to see snow. fish are feeding sub surface. The Browns are mostly done with spawn and drifting back to deeper holes. Streamer fishing has been good, but slower retrieval or even swinging will be the most productive.

Water Clarity: Good Gunni Green

Dont pass up the fast runs leading into the deeper water we are see most of our bigger fish feeding here. Throwing streamers will also produce some aggressive eats. Eggs are still catching fish and work great as an attractor for your smaller nymphs.

Most Productive: Nymphing jig fly patterns, mayfly nymphs and midge nymphs. Focus on shelfs and deeper runs as well as the slower holes has been producing some good fish. Fishing the fast runs and shelf's has been the most productive. Streamers season is ramping up with aggressive fish eating large flies
